Brad In Orange Is the New Black, William Henke played Desmond Piscatella.
Despite having performed a number of parts throughout the years, Brad William Henke rose to prominence as Desmond Piscatella in the Netflix comedy-drama series Orange Is the New Black. Desmond was a bad character that featured in the program from the fourth to sixth seasons. Despite playing a little part, the character’s presence added significantly to the plot of the program. He enjoyed being the guy in command and was always proud of his position in front of the detainees. Despite this, he was not very successful at his job since his crew was abusive, which jeopardized the convicts’ safety. Desmond, on the other hand, did all he could to avoid punishment and tortured the detainees in order to instill fear in others so they would not refuse his commands.
Things became worse when Desmond went psychotic and began kidnapping and torturing the detainees. Although he experienced a change of heart towards the end of the series, he was unable to live the life of a decent man when he was slain by a CERT officer. Orange Is the New Black aired for seven seasons and 91 episodes between July 11, 2013, and July 26, 2019. It was well welcomed by reviewers and spectators alike.
Brad William Henke was an NFL player as well.
